The evil villain and the nice Queen

Once upon a time there lived a Queen pig named Rosie she lived in a happy nice magic castle. But not so far there lived an evil villain named Rico. He was an evil unfunny pig . He lived in a spooky, haunted, scary, banned  farm. He was a killer with a knife but  Rosie was just a kind, happy, nice, helpful Queen. “Maybe I can kidnap the ugly n-n-nice Queen to be my evil Queen,” said the evil robot smelly, ugly pig. “YAWN I’m sleepy I’m going to bed guards,” said the Queen. “This is the perfect time to kidnap the Queen.” said Rico.

“Finally I’ve kidnapped the Queen,” said Rico.
“What do you want from me?” said Rosie.
“I want you to stop being nice and be my evil Queen or I will kill you. Your choice,” said Rico.
“I choose nothing maybe I can think tomorrow,” said Roise. “Mmmmmmmmmm OK! Badnight!”  Said Rico.
“B-b-b-bad night!”  Said Rosie. Smash!!! “I should get out now!!!” Said Rosie and she ran as fast as she could.
“Noooooo!” said Rico.
“I think I should be n-n-nice for now,” said Rico, “and i should fix this farm,” and they lived happily ever after.
